SORRY, due to such a low attendance (not even enough to cover costs) I am cancelling this event. All money will be refunded on Monday through PayPal. Sorry! People say they are intersted in such and then I go through the work to write the invite for this site (a hour) call and reserve and pay for the club house and then people don't sign up. An event must at least cover it's own cost. When we have a very low turn out and I can't even cover the cost of the event, then I have to cancel. Thanks to all of you that DID rsvp and pay.
Now we are up to something different!
How would you like to attend a Sit Down Dinner Party with a select group of attendees? Being interesting, chatty and fun will secure your place in this first of many private dinner parties. That is what we are cooking up!
It is our intention, if enough people show interest, to host the first of many to come, monthly "Sit Down Dinner Parties".
I will paint the picture for you:
We are renting a club house with a full kitchen or hosting this in a private home. There we will prepare the main course, the meat/main dish that is to be served. That could be turkey, ham, pork chops, chicken...whatever the dinner party is that we plan.
We will have enough tables and chairs for the entire group. Each table will have table cloths and be decorated for the occasion.
We will provide the main course and everyone will bring a dish to pass that goes along with the main course. Some people will do the veggies, some will do the breads, some will do the starches and some will do the desert. Some will come and help set up and decorate the tables!
Maybe a group that wants to sit together can come up with the decor for their table and design their table! Flowers, linens..the whole nine yards! Each group/table could be different. People could "host" a table and then others could choose to sit at those tables.
We will also provide water, soft drinks, ice, paper goods and all the condiments.
Bring your dish to pass and an appetite!
BYOB...or plan ahead with your table mates to share bottles.
Now here is where the fun comes in! We are asking each of you to bring a place setting...REAL plates....silverware...REAL silverware and a water and wine glass (if you are drinking wine) and set YOUR place setting! YOU get to design your own place setting!
You don't really want to use your good dishes and transport them? We have the solution! Go to any thrift shop and splurge! Buy a beautiful place setting, silverware and glassware! That way you don't have to worry about breaking the pieces to your set.
Once this event is over, you can wash and wrap the place setting for the NEXT dinner party that you choose to attend! Yes, we are going to have more dinner parties!
Why are we doing this dinner party this way? WHO has a house that will hold the size/type of a group? I don't! What restaurant would let us bring our own food and place settings in? NONE.
Don't you enjoy sitting down to dinner with great people and have meaningful conversations and laughter while sharing a sumptuous meal? Don't you enjoy dinner music and the sounds of a busy restaurant filled with laughter and chatter of happy diners? Don't you enjoy sitting at a beautifully set table? I do and every time I have a dinner party or go to one, everyone is eager to do it again soon. So we are! But we are doing it a little bigger!!!
We plan to do a "Sit Down Dinner Party" once a month and sign up will require payment to RSVP. We will be responsible for the rental of the Club House and the main course along with water, soft drinks and condiments.
So, vote with your dollars! Sign up and pay for this event now. We are working on a location and if we see enough people sign up for this event, we will book it!
We hope to dine with YOU soon!
Fena, Carroll and a whole bunch of friends!
